"Everyone involved with TNA Impact Wrestling is delighted to be returning to screens in South-East Asia," said TNA President Dixie Carter. "Partnering with such a prestigious network as ASN is another huge milestone, as we celebrate 10 years of success. I get lots of Tweets and emails from our fans in Hong Kong, and all around South-East Asia, so I'm delighted they can now watch TNA every week exclusively on ASN Ringside – starting with our 10th anniversary event."
"We are excited to have TNA on ASN Ringside, our unique time slot which brings viewers the world's top fighting events," added Thomas Kressner, CEO of ASN.
